Okay, so you know how I painted that room a while ago? Well, I also decided to put up the curtains. Without finials.
What?!?! Those curtain rods are definitely designed to have a thingamajig at the end.
I decided I don’t care. Buying extra finials wasn’t worth it to me, and they looked kind of funny on the too-long (but we already had them) curtain rods anyway. So I put up my too-long finial-less curtain rods, and I like them a lot. I think they look kind of modern and crisp. They even look like I put them up that way on purpose.
This is the room a long, long time ago (before we bought the house):
And this is the room now (as you walk in):
And this is the best picture of the color combo that I could achieve:
Why did I name this post “Real World Decorating”? Mostly because of the piles. And the cable wire coming out of the wall. And the timeline.
A lot of “DIY” bloggers seem to finish projects at light speed. Not me. That pile will probably either be put into a window (part of the pile is old blinds we took out of the dining room) or go to the ReStore. In a few weeks. Or a month. So if you’re doing projects at a snail’s pace, have no fear. You are not alone.
